As we head into the summer some things are for sure-scorching hot days and the struggle to keep cool this summer. Here are easy tips to keep the nursery cool during summer and beat the heat.
As we all know, creating the safest sleeping environment for a baby is one of the most important things to do. Babies are unable to regulate their body temperature. As parents, we'll need to do all we can to ensure that the temperature in the baby's room remains comfortable for the baby. The ideal nursery temperature should remain around 68 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit.
So during the sweltering summer months, keep the nursery cool. Read on to find out how to keep the baby's nursery cool during summer.
1.MONITOR THE NURSERY TEMPERATURE
First, get a thermometer to keep an eye on the temperature inside the nursery. We like this nursery thermometer that changes colors depending on whether the room temperature is too hot, too cold, or just right! It also keeps track of the humidity levels.
1.KEEP LIGHT AND HEAT FROM COMING INTO THE NURSERY
We love it when sunlight pours into our interiors, but when it's hot outside, that also means it's going to warm up the baby's nursery. Keep out the sunlight by hanging blackout curtains that prevent much of the light and heat from coming in.
2.SET THE CORRECT CEILING FAN DIRECTION
If the nursery has a ceiling fan make sure it rotates counterclockwise during the summer months to push cool air down to the floor and help cool the baby's nursery.
3.INVEST IN A WINDOW MOUNT AC UNIT
Investing in a window-mounted air conditioner unit is probably the easiest way to keep the nursery cool.
4.GET A PORTABLE FAN
Keep the nursery cool during the hot summer months with a portable fan for the baby's room and get the air moving around the room without blowing directly at the baby. Or, get this awesome fan and air purifier unit with an oscillating bladeless fan.
5.CLEAR THE CRIB OF BUMPERS,BLANKETS AND TOYS
To keep the baby cool remove any crib bumpers, blankets, or toys that obstruct the airflow.
KEEP THE BABY COOL IN THE SUMMER MONTHS
Additionally, you can help the baby cool down on sweltering hot days. Dress the baby in lightweight, breezy clothing made of cotton and linen. Hydrate the baby frequently or if the baby takes solids, give them frozen fruits to suck on. Giving the baby a lukewarm bath or, if older getting the baby into a paddling pool can quickly cool the baby down.
